Good for Sedgwick County Commissioners Karl Peterjohn and Richard Ranzau for not being satisfied with a $280,000 local offer to buy a county-owned cell tower at the former Wichita Greyhound Park. They had pressed county staff to try to do better, and the tower was sold at auction Monday for $610,000 to a Florida company. That purchase is expected to close late next month, giving the county more than half a million dollars it can use as it continues a multiyear effort to balance its budget.
